View CoverRead All Articles View This Issue

?Navy vs. Army. The Middies' defense looks tougher. The Cadets offense is more explosive. A good offense over a good defense...ARMY.

?Notre Dame vs. Southern Cal. The Fighting Irish improve each week. The Trojans could be in a dangerous mood after last week's thumping by the Uclans but...NOTRE DAME.

?Miss. vs. Miss. State. Bitter rivalry exists in this one. Ole Miss can capture a Bowl bid by beating scrappy State—and will. MISSISSIPPI.

? Georgia vs. Ga. Tech. The Bulldogs have surprised everyone this season. The Yellow Jackets are not up to snuff, but they have too much talent for the stubborn Bulldogs. GEORGIA TECH.

? Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma A & M. The Sooners cinched their seventh Big Seven championship in a row last week. The Aggies from Stillwater will make it close for the state title. Still, 19 in a row... OKLAHOMA.

? Boston College vs. Holy Cross. B.C. is having its best season in years, the Crusaders their worst. Anything can, has, and does happen here, but... BOSTON COLLEGE.

?Baylor vs. Rice. The Bears will get a share of the Southwest Conference championship and a possible invitation to the Sugar or Gator Bowl by beating the Owls. In a stern test...BAYLOR.

? Florida vs. Miami ( Fla.). No love lost between these two. The Hurricanes have the better record but the Gators have the potential to upset the applecart. In a grueling affair... MIAMI.

? Alabama vs. Auburn. Another traditional grudge match—rivalry became so hot that a hiatus was declared for years. The Crimson Tide has disappointed. The Plainsmen, off slow, have hit their stride...AUBURN.

? North Carolina vs. Duke. This is another one of those games. The Tarheels are improved but the Blue Devils need this one to go to the Orange Bowl...DUKE.
